A Lived Practice

November 12, 2014

I attended a 3 day Symposium and exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago on the theme of A Lived Practice, where life is seen as the site of the artwork. It brought together socially engaged practitioners to speak to an audience of artists and art workers. We heard from Beuysian theorists and city farmers, and Ernesto Pujol, my mentor, gave a performatice lecture on 'The Art of Consciousness' that was a truly captivating and evocative experience where they asked "Can a life practice be an art practice? With this fall program of exhibitions, symposium, events, and books, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago explores the role artists can play in shaping the future."
